Awesome. Seriously funny and sweet. And your Jim/Pam talking heads were right on, so no worries there. It is good to see this from you!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, I appreciate it! I was really worried about getting Jim and Pam's voices right, so I'm glad you enjoyed their talking heads.

"Pam looked back at the camera and said, “He’s already the gay version of Jim.”
Great line! I really enjoyed this - Oscar has always been a favorite and I'm stating to like Andy more, too. Very clever story.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it! And, I must say, that is probably my absolute favorite line in the fic, so I'm happy you pointed it out.

This is totally jokes! I loved it, the tone is so in sync with the show and all the characters are perfect. Great!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, I appreciate it! Characterization is always my #1 concern, so I'm glad it managed to capture the show. Thanks again!

Good thing I get an email when a fave posts, or I'dve missed this. You, my friend, just nudged the sun back up into the sky and gave this falling Office franchise one more day of summer. Great story. Love the frolf bit -- its just the kind of non-sport Andy would get really into (perhaps hackeysack too), and the Andy's interpretation of dude law: he's not gay since the threshold for gayness is doing "the entire dude population." Nice!
Author's Response: TK!!! *hugs* Thank you so very much for this lovely review! I love that it inspired metaphors in you.

Oh my God. I am in love with Oscar and Andy in love. Thank you for writing this pairing... off to read anything else I can find.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, I appreciate it! You can find quite a few Oscar/Andy fics over on LiveJournal, they actually have a community devoted to them. The fic is pretty amazing, especially the ones by dollsome and jesshelga.

Hee! This was awesome. I'm so glad that you're still around to provide all our Andy fetish needs. I must compliment you on your very Oscary Oscar as well.
I feel weird. Sort of retro-y, reading Office fic by an old hand like yourself. It's like we've mostly died off by now. I'm still alive but lapsing in and out of a coma. The coma is JAM baby induced, btw.
Wert!!! I'm happy you're still alive! Also, I'm glad that Oscar was Oscary. I always worry about his narrative voice and fear that it's too me, but I'm glad I got it right in this fic.
Yeah, I've noticed a lot of the regulars seem to be missing. I must admit, I've been off of Office fic for awhile, but then Oscar/Andy revived my love. Season 5 was definitely not my favorite season, but Andy saved it for me, as always.
Thank you muchly for reviewing!

LMAO this was HILARIOUS. I love how Oscar is so not a fan of Jim and Andy is all "Tuna is like… the coolest fish in the sea.” < you nailed the characters perfectly. I am still lmao!
Author's Response: Hee, thank you so much! I'm glad that it gave you a laugh! Sometimes I fear that what I find funny will only be funny in my head, so I'm glad that the humor successfully translates to other people.

I love it, firthgal! It's so good and you have the characters down perfectly!
The only problem is...Andoscar? Andscar? Oscy? Horrible. How are you going to make a JAMmy name for them?
Thanks for writing this. I haven't been reading fanfic lately, but the combination of the title and the fact it was by you made me want to come read it.
Fun story! :)
TLK!!! I have missed you! Hmm, I am a fan of Oandy myself since I spend most of my time sighing, "Oooooh, Andy." But I also like Ando. Andscar brings up some nice imagery. Oscy is pure adorableness. OH, THE POSSIBILITIES!
THANK YOU FOR READING! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

This was freaking brilliant. *standing ovation* There are so many good lines if I quoted I'd be picking out half the story. The exchange about Ryan's eyes - hilarious. Jim and Pam as Michael and Ryan. Andy and Donny Osmond. The Swedish meatball scene. I could go on and on. So much to love here. It's just delightful /Andy.
Author's Response: Oh wow, thank you so, so much! And, hee, Andy/Donny Osmond is my new OTP. Definitely.

I hope this doesn't offend you, but when I read the title, I expected to read something light, funny and borderline offensive. But it wasn't! Offensive, I mean--it was funny. But it was also much deeper than I expected. awesome job.
Author's Response: Hahaha, don't worry, I get what you mean. I could have definitely made this more offensive, especially during Michael's talking head, but when it comes to Andy/Oscar I am all about the harmless fluff. Also, I'm glad you found some deep moments in there, too!

I have the biggest smile on my face right now. This was simply delightful. And don’t take this the wrong way, but I almost didn’t expect to like it. I love both Andy and Oscar, and see why they would make sense, but lately I’ve started to think that maybe these people should try dating outside the office. And also, Andy is almost too “gay” to be really gay (that probably only makes sense if you live in my head though). But you sold it. You sold it good. Oscarsexual and the way they make each other feel like themselves… That’s exactly how you feel when you fall in love with your unlikely soul mate. This story is so funny and real and touching and I just love it. A++
Author's Response: Aww, thank you so much! And I am sort of with you on the whole "these people should date outside of the office" thing. They've kind of oversaturated us with office romances, and I honestly thought I was done with them, but then Oscar/Andy subtext happened and I was back in. Also, when it comes to Andy. I think he is so desperate for affection that I can see him falling in love with anyone, be them male or female. He's always had homosexual tendencies, but I don't think I considered him fully bisexual until season 4 when he had that mancrush on Ryan. Anyway, I am so glad that you enjoyed this fic despite your reservations! Thanks again for reviewing.
